 I won't bore you for long today.

It's a wet and miserable day.  Cold as f... well  you know.

No plans today at all.

ABOVE:  The girls in their 2nd set of new coats.

Coco's has reflective stitching when you shine a light on it, or use the camera flash.

Nice feature.

ABOVE: Archer, the dog whisperer.

ABOVE: Two dogs on the seat, no room for Dante. lol

And that's me for now.

1.05 pm:  And I've spent the entire morning fluffing around in the garage, working out how to set up my stall, including the plants.

It took a while.

ABOVE:  It's sorted .... and now I have to pack it all away again.  *sigh*
Bearing in mind, I will have runners and cot quilts hanging up on the gazebo walls as well.

Now, I'm starving, so off to get some lunch.

Well... it's been bloody quiet here today I must say!
I'm starting to realise that going 'Offline' for a month really hurt my blog readership!
OH well... I'm sure it will pick up again eventually.

If not, I can always bugger off again, into the abyss that is PRIVATE again.

Looking at the weather forecast just now, and it's certainly NOT looking good for a fine market on Saturday.  If it's wet, we won't be going of course.  I can't get my products wet.

Stew just ordered us some Pizza for dinner.  I've been nursing a headache for days now, and really didn't feel like cooking tonight.

So, once we've had dinner, it will be hunker down time, blankie on and just relax.

Catch ya tomorrow.


  1. I keep forgetting you're blogging again, so apologies for lack of engagement! The market stall looks awesome. Very eye catching which is what you want. I hope it's a lovely day weather wise for the market and you get lots of sales.

    Just did a quick catchup on here and have to say that picture of Archer with the dog gives me the warm fuzzies ,,To get the fur baby to stay that still it must know and feel so comfortable with him,
    It’s neat how you all gel together,,,

    Very damp where we are so taking time out this afternoon to watch a couple of country calander episodes and there’s a fabulous one on bee farming etc near Matamata, The scenery is amazing and families going down to picnic by the clear running water,,
    Jealous much ,,,

    Enjoy your day
    Cheers 🥂

    Archer and Cocco are just beautiful together - so sweet to see. Hope the cold weather buggers off - its freezing here in Australia some sort of record for us. Soo over it, gloomy and cold. Your stall items look so good Chris hope the weather behaves. Regards Maria (Australia)
